NHL All-Star Skills Competition 2017: Results and Highlights

They defeated the Atlantic Division 10-6 in the first semifinal, while the Pacific beat the Central Division 10-3 in the other semifinal.

His all-star performance is something Simmonds may never forget as it helped end a long MVP drought for the Philadelphia franchise.

Matthews, who grew up about five hours from Los Angeles, gave the crowd something to cheer about when he scored in a 10-6 loss against the Metropolitan Division. "A lot more fun (than against him)".

"I was happy with how it went honestly", McDavid said afterward, if mildly disappointed not to get the record. "I don't even realize what is happening right now. My family was here to witness it, too, so they can believe me".

"Mine turned out good", Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler said.

Many fans and players hoped for a swift resolution to the NHL's quadrennial decision on whether to shut down during the Olympics, but Bettman has indicated that a decision on Pyeongchang is unlikely to be made during the Board of Governors meeting this weekend in LA.

Simmonds, 28, leads the Flyers with 21 goals this season.

You'd be hard pressed to even find someone who remembers what division won last year's inaugural 3-on-3 tournament - save for the 11 men who split the $1-million sweetener up for grabs.

'America first': President Donald Trump vows to return power to the people
The march has also drawn thousands of women from different backgrounds who simply hope to show their solidarity against Trump. There were so many participants, in fact, organizers were unable to march the intended route to the White House as planned.

Washington Capitals and Metropolitan goaltender Braden Holtby provided the ultimate compliment in evaluating the finale.

The main event happens on Sunday January 29 beginning at 12:30 PM Pacific Time, as the division teams consisting of the very best players in the world will battle for supremacy. "I guess that's the reason why he's got 26 goals this year".

The 3-on-3 tournament style format saw the Pacific Division stars led by hometown favorites Jeff Carter and Drew Doughty defeat the Central Division All-Stars by a touchdown, 10-3, in the first game of the day.

Simmonds was one of four black players on the All-Star roster (joined by Columbus' Seth Jones, Buffalo's Kyle Okposo and Nashville's P.K. Subban), while goaltending great Grant Fuhr was among the 100 greatest players announced Friday, and participated in a pregame receiving line, where Simmonds received a big pat on the back from Flyers legend Bobby Clarke.

Atkinson and John Tavares of the New York Islanders both had two goals and two assists against the Atlantic Division. The Metropolitan Division is the likely favorite with Sidney Crosby as their captain.

Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens stopped three of six shots and Tuukka Rask of the Boston Bruins eight of 14.

He also had three assists during an opening 20-minute explosive display that saw all nine Pacific skaters score at least once. He said one of the best moments of the weekend was getting to play on a team coached by the legendary Gretzky.

As the National Hockey League kicked off its All-Star skills competition in Los Angeles on Saturday night, Snoop Dogg took over as the in-arena DJ to introduce the players. The Kings, who joined the National Hockey League in the original Second Six expansion, were chosen to host the weekend as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations. The NHL takes Monday off but is back in action Tuesday with 14 games on the slate, with only the Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks not scheduled.
